Aspects of the distribution and ecology of the rare shrub Prostanthera tallowa (Lamiaceae), an endemic of the lower Shoalhaven River valley, South Coast, NSW

  • The results of a field survey of Prostanthera tallowa (family Lamiaceae), a rare and only recently described shrub from the lower Shoalhaven River valley, on the NSW South Coast, are described. The extent and size of populations in the vicinity of the type locality at Tallowa Dam are greatly expanded and several new and distant populations are described. Information is provided on all known populations and their habitat. The species is regarded as adequately reserved, as almost all known populations occur in protected areas though the actual area of occupancy is small. The species recruits after fire with most sites having been burnt about 10 years ago; the total known population size is currently over 3,300 plants.
